    Hosted by Quiltmaker

    Over the summer, Quiltmaker hosted a Christmas in July Reader Contest by providing a scavenger hunt where contestants answer questions about sponsors' products. Maureen F. from Colorado answered the questions correctly and was the grand prize winner of a Janome Skyline S5 sewing machine.

    Pictured below is Maureen with Marge from The Creative Needle in Littleton, CO, where she picked up her new machine. Maureen was a very happy woman as she passed her Memory Craft 6500P machine to her daughter.

    "I have sewn as a young child and later as a teenager, making all of my own coats and dresses. As my children came along, I made clothes for them and turned to quilting in the early 80's. When my daughter was old enough to take up sewing, we made our first quilt together. My experience with quilting has been an ongoing journey; learning new techniques as my interests dictated.

    Now that I am retired, I have become more passionate about my quilting "hobby" which has turned into a full-time endeavor with quilting for family, friends and a church charity group.

    My grandmother told me "take up sewing and you will never be bored." That is a true fact!" - Maureen

    Congratulations Maureen!

    Second Place Winner

    In August, Janome Blogger Merrick White from Merrick's Art and her best friend Leanne Barlow from Elle Apparel launched The Modern Girl's Guide to Sewing, a two-part online video course that teaches beginner and intermediate sewing enthusiasts everything they need to know about modern clothing construction.

    As part of this program, Merrick and Leanne hosted a giveaway for all of the participants. Janome provided machines for the top three winners. The first place winner of a Janome 4120QDC sewing machine was Sophorn A. from Washington. You can read her blog post here. The second place winner of a Janome DC2015 sewing machine was Cassie H. from Indiana. Cassie picked up her machine at "Always in Stitches LLC" in Noblesville, IN.

    "My mother has always been a wonderful sewist. She made some of our Halloween costumes growing up; put buttons back onto our coats or patched up tears or holes in clothing that are often a consequence of having playful and adventurous kids. I've always admired my mother for her abilities and everything she is able to do.

    I have always wanted to learn how to sew, but for as long as I can remember, sewing machines have terrified me simply because I lack knowledge of how to use one properly. Thanks to The Modern Girl's Guide to Sewing and the giveaway they hosted, I now have the opportunity to learn and develop the skills I have been wanting to for so long.

    I never thought that I would get such a wonderful opportunity and I am thankful and excited to have a new DC2015 machine!" - Cassie

    Congratulations Cassie!
